      Villain is a solid reg at my limits I would say he is a TAG on the nittier side of things.

      Flop: I put villain on 22-QQ , AQ at the time, I thought any JX was unlikely given the way I had seen him play (except JJ obv).

      I chose to c/c the flop here because:
      1) I only really get value from the unlikely JX or QQ that decided to flat and I am ruling out KK since he will definitely 3b pre. I also didn't expect him to float me from what I had seen of his play.
      2) given his AF I hoped that he might stab the flop or my flop check might allow me to value bet the turn if he checks behind since I showed weakness on the flop
      3) I think I can kind of play WAWB now since the board is dry and my opponent can have JJ/99

      Turn: This doesn't really change much unless he has 33 as I don't expect him to have any kind of draw since I hold A :diamond: . I wasn't sure whether to DB/fold the turn or c/c but I thought DB/fold doesn't give villain the opportunity to bluff again on the turn and I can always bet the river for thin value.

      River: Initially I had decided to b/f the river for thin value against some weaker PP. When he raises me I know I am beat due to the sizing, plus most players at NL10 wont ever bluff raise you on the river like this. However, since I play against this opponent a lot I wanted to pay to see how he played the hand.

      Conclusion: I think that I should just bet FTR for value in hindsight. I think I would have to play b/c F and maybe play WAWB on the T+R if raised on the flop since only JJ/99 beat me on this board.

      Hello muel294,

      Well, but why do you Check/Call like that? You just allow him to hit something, just Bet/Bet/Bet. :f_cry: Why would be a 13/10 guy be ever a solid reg? His style doesn't even play profitable I assume, at the best break-even.

      His calling range are mainly PPs and they either pay you on the flop or not. They ain't bluffing a lot more there. And as played I'd even Bet/Fold the river cause I rarely doubt that he bluffs there.

      Best Regards.
